Speaking of views, we have private decks on both sides of our building. The West side of our townhome faces a busy street. The East sides faces a quiet residential neighborhood. Yeah, it's a big townhome. The other day I captured the sunset from both ends of the building at the same time.
Here is the East side view from our deck. That's downtown and Mount Rainier in the background.
Here is the same sunset from the West side, on the deck located just outside my private office:
You can see why I love it here. :)
